Salisbury School Research Guide: Reference "tertiary" sources

Reference (tertiary) sources

Tertiary sources gather information from primary and secondary sources to offer often overviews of well-established, factual background info on a topic, idea, person, or event. 

Use library reference tools to gather facts

​Please note: reference resources like these provide basic (accurate!) information but are NOT strong sources to cite as evidence.
